The Polo 1.2 TSI becomes the hottest B segment hatchback on sale in India today. With a performance figure that can easily put to shame some bigger cars, the new Polo GT TSI is being heralded as the logical successor to the now defunct Polo 1.6 petrol. Volkswagen TSI engines have won a lot of accolades for being compact, high powered and fuel economic in nature. These engines have a high torque figure due to the combination of Direct Petrol injection and intake of high compress air with the use of turbocharger.
